court for the district, we have flint of the presidentacy appointments that have not been filled for over months, and that they are used the basically the filibuster to prevent an up or down vote on judges, on cabinet-level positions, to a level that's never before we have seen in american politics. that's wrong. >> senator, let me build on that exact point, which is you have now had eight democratic senators come out for fixing obama care, at least as it relates to the people currently -- yet senator reid has not indicated he would be willing to bring those to the floor, though they'll clearly have a clear majority of the senate favorite. shouldn't that -- if we're going to go back to regular order, shouldn't we also have votes on things like obama care? >> as you know, when we passed medicare part d, a lot of us were opposed, but after it became law, we want let's make it work, work the best that it can.
